Police in Honduras caught five Syrians who were trying to make their way to the United States with stolen and doctored passports, a police spokesman in Tegucigalpa told Reuters Wednesday.
The Syrians had no apparent link to the attackers in Paris, police said. The stolen passports were reportedly Greek.
At least one suspect in Friday’s massacre had reportedly entered Europe with a fake Syrian passport.
The suspects in Honduras were in police custody, and had flown to the country from Costa Rica, according to Reuters. They were trying to arrive in the U.S. by land, presumably by traveling through Mexico, the police spokesman added.
